Started by the European avant-garde, the revolutionary process of change in the understanding of the concept of art is still ongoing. Examples of electronic art (and, in some aspects, the electronic art itself) seem to confirm this thesis by forcing us to expand the idea of ‘art’. This phenomenon, of course, is a result of digitization, influencing the quality, reception and the form of works. The mix of old and new technologies: ‘The art showing its time, appreciating both current technological capabilities and human imagination. By genre – the art of installation, navigation and re-mixation. By perception – the art of the artifact being modified by the user. By communication – the art of dialogue and interaction. By composition – art using an open structure, mix and segmentation’
